About this Program • Impacts of Accreditation and Quality Improvement • Accreditation Readiness Tool • Quality Improvement and Safety (QIS) Network
The Community Accreditation and Quality Improvement program (CAQI) partners with community health and addiction recovery services to strengthen quality and culturally safe health and wellness services by and for BC First Nations. We are community-based and community-led, providing funding, resources, learning opportunities and mentorship through the FNHA Quality Improvement and Safety Network.
For a complete description of program objectives and components, see Community Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program in the FNHA Programs and Services Guide.
We offer an Accreditation Readiness Tool that can be used by health organizations and teams to support discussions of interest and self-determine engagement. Please contact us for more information.
Hosted by the CAQI program, the Quality Improvement and Safety Network is a province wide network of First Nations peer organizations.
Network members have opportunities to connect with fellow colleagues, access new learning opportunities, share leading practices and build supporting resources.
Network members are health and wellness services, most which are fully accredited, and addiction recovery services, all of which are fully accredited.
The network also includes several self-governing nations. To date, nearly 100 communities are being served by participating organizations, councils, societies or tribal councils.
